Mushkin Callisto 120GB SSD Revisited

CrystalDiskMark 2.2

Crystal Disk Mark on the other hand runs three different tests – Sequential, 512k and 4k block sizes. I would like to point out that read/write speeds are typically much lower when operating on smaller block sizes and that this isn’t something of concern.

The tables turn yet again where the new firmware offers improved performance across the board in both Read and Write tests.

PCMark Vantage

PCMark Vantage offers it’s very own Hard Disk testing suite. Unlike the benchmarks that we have carried out earlier, these are based on real world usage. To make things a little more interesting, we have also included results from Corsair Nova and Crucial C300 SSD’s.

Unfortunately more chalk and cheese performance; while three out of seven tests revealed enhanced performance, another four shows significantly reduced performance.

Let’s wrap this one up.
